BURTON: The Life of Richard Burton

BURTON vividly presents the life of the great Welsh actor in his own words from humble beginnings to Hollywood mega-stardom. Beautiful women (not least Liz Taylor), alcohol, wealth, stage and screen are the threads woven into this sad, happy, exuberant often hilarious one-man show. Drink was the only real anodyne to his deteriorating health and mental state, his doomed tempestuous relationship with Taylor and his constant guilt over the abandonment of his family.

Rhodri Miles, (Game of Thrones, Atlantis) takes on the role of the younger Burton and received critical acclaim at two Edinburgh Fringe Festivals and the Hollywood fringe festival where the play won 'Best International' show.
